What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think Mercyhurst University has awesome opportunities. I have had a great experience because I associate with awesome friends, who are also commuters. I love the music department, because it is like a family. We get along very well and always encourage another. I wish there was more campus space to walk around. I think some of the teachers should be replaced, while there are others who should remain in their position because they are so passionate about their job. Overall, it is a great school and will help you jump into your future career.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Mercyhurst is an incredible community. Everyone is so nice and welcoming; I've met so many amazing people. There's always something to do on campus, whether it be a hockey game or craft night. And the professors are super accommodating. They really care about their students, and they take the time to get to know you.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Too expensive, but the faculty are absolutely amazing and I really feel like I am receiving a quality education. My only real issue is the price tag, especially for room and board. Some people are not especially fond of Erie, but I think it is a great town to live in, always something to be doing whether it's in town or at presque isle.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

When I first stepped on campus a little over a year ago, I knew Mercyhurst University was the school for me. Part of the reason that I became interested in Mercyhurst was that they are the only school in Pennsylvania that is allowed to use real human remains for studies and the forensic science majors actually get to go to real crime scenes. The school is great for non-forensic majors too. I’m an ambassador, which is an elite club on campus and through it I give campus tours, so I know everything there is to know about the school. The campus is absolutely beautiful, we actually rent our flowers so when it starts to snow, because it snows a lot in Erie, the flowers are returned and then brought back in the spring. Additionally, we are a Catholic university that was founded on the idea of service. There are many volunteer opportunities on campus and students are always trying to help others. Campus is relatively small too, I can get to any building in about 5 minutes or less and class sizes are small. We have a 14:1 student to faculty ratio, which is great because it insures that all students’ voices will be heard. We also have two division 1 sports teams, which are men’s and women’s hockey, and hockey games are a really big deal on campus. The football games are a big deal too, they do a lot of tailgating during those, but honestly our team is not very good. I love Mercyhurst and I feel so honored to be a student here, but there are some downsides. One major thing is that they recently announced that students are required to live on campus all four years and they are currently building a new sophomore building that is very expensive. A lot of freshman right now are seriously considering transferring because they can’t afford to live in the new residence hall and it’s really sad because the school is so amazing. Like I said, I love Mercyhurst and I’m so happy that I’m a student here, so if you’re looking for a smaller school with a great community, Mercyhurst is the school for you.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Mercyhurst University is a place where they really make you feel like "Hurst is home". There is always something going on whether it be weekend activities the student government puts on, athletic events, club meetings, anything. I highly recommend this school to anyone who wants a smaller school with a lot of diversity and acceptance. Everyone here is friendly and there are so many resources to help you with anything you need (volunteer, jobs, learning differences, academics, etc.). hurst is home!!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love my school. From the moment I visited the campus my junior year of high school, I knew this is where I was going to spend four years of my life. I have made so many friends, gotten into activities I have never imagined, and learned so much, not just academically, but about myself as well. I could not have picked a better school to complete my undergraduate degree.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love my university, I have been attending mercyhurst for years. I attend classes that are flexible to my life as a mother and wife and employee. I’m able to get help tutoring and assistance with things in between. I’ve learned what’s needed to put forth to pass classes . I work to learn my subjects s well as network. I recommend this college setting.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

At first I was weary of going to what seemed like such a small school. In reality this campus offers just as much, if not more than a campus that has a larger class sizes. The professors are all very open and and the science labs are great. There is always something planned by the student government that will fit all types of interests.
